The Three Worlds of Surveying

The technical world includes statistics, minimum standards, and suggestions of embracing new technology. The business world involves incorporation, bookkeeping, the surveyor/client relationship, marketing, and entrepreneurial skills. The legal world involves understanding statutes and case law, discussions of what laws govern surveyors, and an in-depth discussion of negligence and professional liability.

2) Get a refresher on computing statistics in Microsoft Excel.

3) Participate in an interactive discussion on surveying instruments and hear what everyone thinks about their differences and accuracies.

5) Refresh your skills on business topics such as P&L’s, balance sheets and business plans.

6) Review how the legal profession is so closely integrated with surveyor projects.
